I am still interested in the subject and hope to one day find enough
free time to actually create something usable. Adfs was an experiment
and it showed that it couldn't be done the way I wanted it.

It was supposed to be rsync assisted by kqueue file events to detect
changes but, among other things, change detection isn't a very
demanding part of rsyncing files. In short, rsync in cron would do
much better.
